* A Note to my Former Students and Young Supporters: I'm Stuffed with Gratitude and Joy ! (Letter in Today's Valley News)
806: A Beautiful Number
I want to assure my former students and young supporters, who may think PK "lost," that
Winning Isn't Everything.
Sometimes having folks support you when you came from nowhere and put on a very unusual Un-campaign means more than gaining office or achieving victory. It means a big pat on the back.
Not many people in the world have been fortunate enough to have 806 people come up to them and say, "I believe in you to represent me."
I am one of those lucky few.
Look at these numbers.
Kevin Christie (D) 2,154
Sheila Vowinkel (D) 1,668
Alex De Felice (R) 1,392
Paul Keane (I) 806
When I see "Paul Keane (I) 806" I don't see fourth place.
I see 806 votes as an amazing total.
- one third of the first winner's total of 2,154
- one half of the second winner's total of 1,668
Thank you, Thank you, Hartford voters !

My best wishes to the winners, Ms. Vowinkel and Mr. Christie !
THE WORLD’S LONGEST AND MOST JOYOUS RETIREMENT PARTY
Five and a half months ago when I announced I would run an Un-campaign as an Independent, I was in my 24th year of teaching at
. I intended to continue and resign only if I
won election. It quickly became apparent
that as a candidate I would be in a potential conflict-of-interest situation
since students would inevitably question me about the election and I did not
want to try to influence their beliefs, as opposed to influence their command
of literature. Hartford High school
So I rertired.
Then the wonderful gifts came:
· A recent graduate emailed me that she had “registered to vote because of me” (what a wonderful feeling that gave me.)
· People stopped me in the store and wished me well.
· My pooper-scooper video went viral and received 2,400 views in one week. link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rp3tTnqp_Lk
· Two distinguished colleagues wrote letters to the Valley News supporting my campaign. Link http://pkvermonter.blogspot.com/2012/11/summing-up-scroll-through-this-post-for.html
- I got the courage to speak out to school boards about the unfairness of testing late-bloomers with standardized testing http://youtu.be/mCKvXgsfht8
In short, THIS HAS BEEN THE LONGEST AND MOST JOYOUS RETIREMENT PARTY in human history!!
Thanks to you all, and especially the 806 voters who supported me.

I only need to get ONE vote more than third place to win on Tuesday.
TWO of the four candidates will win no matter what.
Would you please go to my facebook page and hit "share" on the BIG photo of me with the skeleton with the sign "Vote Keane". That will send it to all your contacts by hitting "share".
That might produce the ONE vote I need to move from third to second.

PLEASE ASK OTHER HARTFORD VOTERS TO CONSIDER VOTING FOR ME THIS TUESDAY.
Final Three Days:
No PUSH, No Arm Twisting from me , just a "THANK YOU" for the past five and a half months. I've enjoyed the UN-campaign.
If you elect me I'll work for you; if you don't I'll still be around making my opinions known.
Special thanks to all those who have quietly asked another voter to consider voting for me.
And special thanks to Mr. Walker and Mr. Librot who wrote the Valley News, supporting me.
Best wishes to all the candidates on election day.
